River Dart

Our Favourite Photos of the River Dart

Meandering its way from the heights of Dartmoor National Park to the serene estuary at Dartmouth, the River Dart spans approximately 75 kilometres, carving a picturesque path through the idyllic South Devon countryside. Enveloped by protected landscapes like the South Devon National Landscape, the Dart stands as a prominent feature in this region.  

Throughout the year, the river buzzes with activity, attracting both locals and visitors eager to explore its diverse waters. Whether paddling along on a SUP, mastering the art of white water rafting, casting a line for fishing or simply indulging in a leisurely river boat cruise between Totnes and Dartmouth, there’s an array of ways to immerse oneself in its beauty. For those preferring to stay on land, a plethora of scenic walking routes offer panoramic views of the river’s tranquil expanse. 

Teeming with wildlife, the River Dart offers ample opportunities for nature enthusiasts to encounter a myriad of creatures, both on its banks and within its waters. This rich ecosystem, coupled with the area’s temperate climate, also contributes to the production of high-quality food products such as shellfish, cheese and wine. 

As the river meanders past charming towns and villages, there’s no shortage of sights and activities to enjoy. From the centuries-old bridges and secluded woodlands found in Dartmoor to the vibrant coastal settlements along its journey to the sea, the River Dart boasts an abundance of captivating locales. 

With such a diverse array of picturesque settings along its banks, it’s no surprise that the River Dart serves as a photographer’s paradise. Whether capturing the graceful flow of water cascading over rocks, the sweeping vistas of the surrounding countryside or the vibrant hues of boats dotting the river’s surface, the Dart offers an endless array of captivating scenes.
